Universal Harmony is a show dedicated to playing conscious and current music that connects people regardless of genre. Giving the 'status quo' a polite middle finger, Universal Harmony pushes boundaries to engage the mind and also the emotion that music evokes in all of us, in the way that it connects people.

The song we shine a spotlight on...

Yaeji - Drink I'm Sippin On
The song appears on 'EP2', released November 3 by NY based GODMODE. The New York City and Seoul-based producer Kathy Yaeji Lee usually creates house music and pop tunes, but her vocal delivery often sounds like rap. Her nonchalant vocals even bear similarities to 21 Savage’s chilling deadpan, although Yaeji offers a breathiness that floats over hard drums instead of sinking right into them.

Feature: A Different Take On The World
Where we highlight a different way of thinking in order to better understand our experience of the world...

Why Mindfulness Is A Superpower
Practicing mindfulness is one of the single most powerful things you can do for your wellbeing. Narrated by Dan Harris, author of 10% Happier, which takes readers on a journey of how he reduced stress without losing edge and found self-help that actually works. Harris shares how, like running in the 40s, mindfulness is the next big public health revolution.

Feature: Wake Up To The System, part 2/4
In recent years, writer Andrew Macpherson has been researching the subject of money. This week’s episode, titled 'Know The System For What It Is', touches on how global banking doesn't seem concerned with the welfare of people, only with their power and profit. Does quantitative easing dilute and devalue the value of money that already exists? Perhaps.

Most people are good and so most people assume the people in power are good.
